An engagement photo shoot is an integral part of the whole wedding experience. This photo shoot allows you to get accustomed to being in front of the camera before the big day. An engagement photo shoot also helps you get to know your wedding photographer.
Now, with all that said, what do you do with these shots? These wonderful images are often used for the save-the-date cards and for newspaper announcements. But you should certainly showcase your prints and get the most out of them. After all, you will look fantastic in these shoots. Dont you want to show them off? Take a look at some of the suggestions below!
Many venues have LCD screens and entertainment equipment to set up slide shows during the reception. This is always an enjoyable aspect, as slide shows allow your guests to watch a visual narrative of your lives and relationship. Along with your engagement photos, add baby pictures, college and graduation photos, and snaps throughout the years. This is very affordable source of entertainment.
Send the save-the-date as a magnet that features your favorite engagement photo. People will enjoy the small gift and keep it on their fridge long after the wedding.
Create your own guest book out of the engagement prints. Guests can flip through the pictures and leave a personal note. Dont forget to throw in some pens!
Have an engagement image printed onto wedding favors. For engagement parties, add an engagement image to the top of you cake. Makes for a very yummy photo!
